Knitting for the Winter

Finishing the mystery quilt top apparently took all my quilting energy for a while, so I have just been knitting for two little girls, Miss Yellow

and Miss Purple,

these too for her,

and for their mother Silver Darling.

The brilliant colours of our Autumn are almost gone, and almost composted too already.

Remember this view from May, when the forest around our place was cleared so the trees can grow better, and Mr K. asked if he could clear away some trees they had cut down? 

Well, they were happy to say yes, and so he did some harvesting, and now there is this nice pile of logs seasoning and waiting for further sawing so we can burn them in our fireplace, not this Winter but the next one, and maybe some years after that too.

Today was the first day with ice on the ground at places all day long, and even the shallow parts of the ponds had a thin ice cover. Visiting swans were there together with the usual ducks, they must stay until the cygnets have learned to master their wings for the migration.


  1. We still have fall coloured leaves on the trees but perhaps with the rain today and tomorrow, they might be all gone.

  2. Your knitting reminds me of fall's end. Why is the little finger on the Mom's glovelet closed in ?

    Early spring trees are in full leaf so the birds are nesting early summer trees are starting to bloom.

    Like the wood pile.

  3. What fabulous knitted gifts to keep fingers and toes warm.....
    WOW! What a wonderful pile of firework for future winters...

  4. Lucky Miss Yellow and Miss Purple! Looks like you have them knitted up in perfect time since you already have ice. That Mr. K is a good worker! That's a LOT of logs.

  5. Okay, now why does that one glove have the small finger covered? Love the glove above that! Well, I guess I love them all.
    Amazing, that you have already had ice for a whole day! At the moment it is above 15C here with us. A bit too warm for the season, but I don't really care.
    Have a creative week!
